Bruce Davey, Adapted P.E. Teacher, Sylvan Union School District in Modesto, California
“I have been using the Pumper Car Original and Junior for many years with students who have mild to severe disabilities. The Pumper Cars are well designed durable vehicles that get used quite frequently with students ranging from Pre-K through 8th grade. My students love using the car and are always excited to participate in the wide range of activities that emphasize fitness, eye hand coordination, spatial awareness, social skills, and language development while having fun.”

“The Pumper Car is especially appropriate for use by children with deconditioning following illness, decreased strength, low tone, motor planning issues, lack of coordination, autism, sensory processing disorders and childhood obesity...It provides benefits that other equipment does not, such as stability for children who experience postural instability, a rhythmic timing pattern and an aerobic workout.”
KRISTIN BRICKMEYER-STUBBS, MS, OTR/L • DIRECTOR OF OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY • KENNEDY KRIEGER INSTITUTE

PUMPER CAR STORY & COMMITMENT
We encourage you to watch this video to see how the Pumper Car® is used in therapy sessions, P.E. classes and just around the neighborhood. You can see first-hand how children are able to work on various muscle groups, increase their mobility and have fun at the same time.
Pumper Cars originally were sold as fun toys for young kids. To Mike’s surprise, he learned that his toy was becoming a very popular exercise therapy device at children’s hospitals and with physical therapists treating children with special needs. Maybe it was fate that a guy who never got the chance to go into medicine ended up inventing a device that has been dramatically improving the lives of children with everything from Down syndrome and autism to cerebral palsy and spina bifida.
